"A classic since it first appeared in 1965, this book has lost nothing of its originality and brio. A collection of essays whose themes are seemingly disparate... Myth and Thought among the Greeks owes its unity to Vernant's innovative methodology... This book remains today a passionate and profound inquiry of the Greeks, both distant from and near to us in the evolution of their structures and mental activities." L'Ecrivain
